Interlibrary Loan

InterLibrary Loan (ILL)

InterLibrary Loan (ILL) is another way to get your book or article if our library does not have it. We can help you find it at another library and have that library send it to us. If you request:

  • Books: We will loan it to you for a time determined by the lending library.

  • Articles: We will usually send a digital copy of the article to you via your email.

 NOTE: most libraries will not loan textbooks, CDs, DVDs, or videotapes.
